Eagles make a coaching change

Last night's loss to the Cowboys has resulted in a coaching change this morning for the Eagles.

Defensive line coach Jim Washburn has been fired.

Head coach Andy Reid released a statement this morning saying it's in the team's best interest to move in a different direction in trying to maximize production of the defensive line.

The Birds were tied for league lead with 50 sacks last season. So far this year they only have 20, which is tied for 27th.

Washburn will be replaced by former D-line coach Tommy Brasher.
